Following the completion of the design work of the Bakassi deep seaport project, Cross River state Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade says the port will turn around the economy of not only cross river state but the south south region when completed.
Ayade stated this when he received the management team of china habour international who are in the state to finalise the arrangements before the actual construction commences.
The governor said cross river state’s economic potential as a maritime corridor is enormous.
On his part, the managing director of china habour international, Jason Wane said the team was ready to commence the multi billion naira project to specification and terms of the agreement, explaining that their wealth of experience in port construction worldwide will speak for the company.
The project which is going to be in three phases will be an economic zone for the Niger Delta region in agro allied exports.
